I don't think so. John Cage did: he was show man, not a musician, Gould
was just a solipsist. He never cares if there is a lot of listeners
arround him or not; he just do what he wants; almost an authist, tring to
scape to the fifth dimention.

IMHO he was ready at 1953, as everybody not deaf knows an knew at that
